Our Intake Specialists work closely with attorneys to identify and prioritize opportunities for client representation. Intake Specialists assume primary responsibility for potential client initial interviews. During these interviews, Intake Specialists must gather all facts pertinent to an individual’s legal claims. Intake Specialists are responsible for summarizing these facts to our attorneys so that they can determine if the individual’s claims fall within the scope of our practice areas and need further investigation. Not only do these summaries enable our attorneys to efficiently make a determination regarding an individual’s representation, but they are also referred to throughout the duration of a case.

- A commitment to civil rights and an interest in social justice and public interest litigation;
